The sharia law has taken another step forward in Canada. The most appalling thing is that this time it has been “applied” by healthcare professionals. In a nutshell, at Kingston General Hospital (Ontario) a new mother with complications from emergency C-section and her baby were forced to move out of a common hospital room so that a Muslim woman would be able to breastfeed her baby undisturbed. You can read the full story here. What added insult to the injury was the fact that the mother was also forced to pay $750 for using the new room. Continue reading
The Toronto mayoral race is heating up. There are too many contenders and it is still not easy to pick the best one.
Recently I met Joe Pantalone at a charity fundraiser. I knew that he was a city councillor, but I wasn’t aware that he was running for mayor. I asked him which political party he represents. He answered that he was an NDP sympathizer, but as a candidate he was above all political parties. I tried to find out what he will do to solve the traffic congestion problem in Toronto, and he said that it won’t be much because the city gets only 8% of the taxes collected here. Continue reading
It was reported three days ago that most of the oil spilled in the Mexican Gulf after the BP disaster miraculously disappeared. Actually, it wasn’t a miracle. Everything happened for perfectly natural reasons.
For starters, there were over 4,000 ships that were involved in the skimming operations, trying to collect as much oil as possible. However, they were not the major contributors to the solution. Continue reading
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are going to ban the users of BlackBerry phones from instant messaging, e-mailing and web browsing. The ban, worthy of the spirit of the medieval Islam, which reigns there, is caused by the problem of too many users being out of control. The difficulties of monitoring and censoring their conversations threaten the “moral” Islamic pillars of the Kingdom. More about that here.
Great way to save on halal hot dogs in Toronto. At this hot dog cart (just across the street from the Jewish Community Centre on Spadina) you can get halal beef hot dog with pop for only $2.50.
If you are an infidel, you would pay $2.50 for a hot dog plus a $1 for pop, accrding to their regular prices displayed at the other side of the cart. It pays to be a believer.
I wonder for how long would’ve this sign survived, if it read:
“PORK SAUSAGES WITH POP FOR CATHOLICS ONLY, $2.50”
On the last day of the spring session of the Canadian Parliament Olivia Chow, an NDP MP from Toronto, moved to introduce Bill C-556, An Act to amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (exception to inadmissibility). You can find the complete text of her proposal on her website or in the Parliament’s records.
The purpose of the amendment is to stop the (alleged) discrimination against people with disabilities who want to become legal Canadian residents. As with any issue related to a disadvantaged group, any criticism of that issue could bring the anger of the righteous leftists upon the critic. Nevertheless, let’s see why Olivia’s idea is not good.
